This listing is for a 31-inch by 31-inch piece of a late 1800s primitive antique cutter quilt in a log cabin pattern. The first photo shows the entire piece. The piece overall has a wonderful "tea-stained" appearance on account of natural aging of the fabrics. Most of the fabrics on the front are homespuns and calicos. This piece has a sweet border of tiny red birds (or stars?) on a yellow background with a narrow band of turkey red calico with tiny leaf designs (also used in the log cabin blocks). The back of the piece is a lovely blue and white homespun fabric, shown in the last photo. The quilt appears to have been pieced with a treadle sewing machine and hand-quilted at 4-6 SPI. On the front, there are four places where the batting is exposed on account of seam splits, and the fabrics are slightly frayed along those splits. There are also four smaller splits in the seams that could easily be repaired. I found no flaws or blemishes on the homespun backing. The piece has thick cotton batting. Please remember this fabric is from an antique cutter quilt and as such cannot be expected to be perfect.
